Little has aggressive plans to scale and build traction and will be leveraging offline and online mediums for the same. The campaign is likely to launch soon in select cities. Little will have thousands of deals live at any given moment from a variety of merchants that include restaurants, salons, spas, movie halls, hotels, gyms, weekend getaways and such. Because the deals are live, and on app, Little will build a sense of urgency to get users to avail the deals. Little, at this time, is already live in major cities of India with thousands of merchants live on the app.

"Little will open up a host of new opportunities for local merchants; it will make their business more customer-centric and this needs a new way of thinking on the brand. Bang in the Middle is working with us to make Little very powerful," says Manish Chopra, MD and founder, Little.
